Sauces which are a pleasure

Adaleigh Weber, Staff Writer

As Chick-fil-A’s popularity has spread across America, happy customers are pleased with the simple menu options and the classic sauces which add joy to any meal option on the menu. 

Due to the demand and popularity, it is no wonder Chick-fil-A started to sell its sauces. If a Chick-fil-A sauce lover were to blindfold themselves and dip a chicken nugget into a collection of store-bought sauces such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, and a Chick-fil-A sauce, it would easily be distinguished from the other grocery store sauces, due to its uniqueness and enjoyability. 

The sauce options at Chick-fil-A include its signature Chick-fil-A sauce, Polynesian sauce, Honey Mustard, Garden Herb Ranch, Zesty Buffalo, Barbeque, and Sweet and Spicy Sriracha.

The most popular sauces at Chick-fil-A are its signature sauce and Polynesian sauce. The smoky tang of the Chick-fil-A sauce and the perfect amount of sweetness in the Polynesian sauce are the best flavors to add to a chicken sandwich or nuggets. 

As someone who always hoards the two iconic sauces, I can positively say they taste good on eggs. I also eat them with frozen nuggets or other fast food chicken and fries, because they truly are delicious sauces. 

After years of eating Chick-fil-A and dipping chicken into their sauces, in comparison, Zaxby’s sauces do not taste like anything to me. The spicy sauces are disappointing and only offer a slight sting on my tongue. The Zax Sauce also tastes strange, and similar to Chick-fil-A’s sauce, except not as satisfying as the chicken. 

Whenever I order from Zaxby’s, I dip their chicken into Chick-fil-A’s signature sauce or Polynesian sauce, because it tastes better that way. I prefer the stronger flavor. Chick-fil-A’s sauces have a longer-lasting flavor that lingers in my mouth long after consuming my meal, which is why I love their sauce.

Chick-fil-A sauces beat Zaxby’s easily in terms of their flavor and uniqueness.

If Zaxby’s wants to pick up their sauce game, they are going to have to add a lot more zest to their signature sauce, and a bigger kick to their spicy options. Chick-fil-A sauces all around have more flavor and kick. In addition to this, the sauces can go on anything, so the possibilities are endless.
